Places to eat in Ipoh

Here are some of the so-called famous food outlets to visit when you are in Ipoh.
Kong Heng Coffee Shop in Jalan Bandar Timah in the 'old town' of Ipoh. I tried the meatball noodle soup and it was the best meatball noodle soup I have ever tasted. There are also other food in there like the pork satay, wan tan mee, popiah and many many other food.
Woolley Food City is a foodcourt located in Lengkok Canning. This foodcourt is open during lunchtime and also dinnertime.
Kam Wan Food Court is located just next to Woolley Food City. Between the two, Kam Wan has more variety. There are more stalls in here. Kam Wan opens only at night. I tried the popiah in Kam Wan and it is one of the best popiah I have ever tasted. It is quite different from the popiah we have in Penang.
Golden Point Food Court is located in Persiaran Bercham Selatan 20. It is located on the other side of the PLUS highway. This is the foodcourt with the Langkap Pau. If you have not tried the Langkap Pau, you should try it. The char siew pau is quite different from the one we have in Penang. They also have all sorts of flavours. Chocolate Pau, Strawberry name it.
This is the over-rated taugeh chicken rice restaurant. Lou Wong is located in Jalan Yau Tet Shin in the 'new town' of Ipoh. It is always extremely crowded to the extent of seeing customers sitting on tables along the road. Come early if you want to have seats. Anyway, nothing is impressive about the chicken rice. I felt the chickren rice just taste normal. Even the taugeh chicken rice in my neighbourhood in Penang taste better.

You are absolutely right. The so-called 'Ngah Choi Gai' just like the normal chicken rice, nothing special! =)
